Media Advisory: Snoezelen room opens in Toronto
  
Councillor Bas Balkissoon and Brenda Librecz, General Manager for Parks,
Forestry and Recreation will officially open the Snoezelen Room at the
Agincourt Community Centre.

A snoezelen room, a multi-sensory room, creates a stress-free environment
designed specifically for individuals with disabilities, including those with
sensory processing, behavioural, intellectual and physical limitations.

This is the first time that a snoezelen room has been created in a parks and
recreation facility in North America. Funding for the project was received
through the 2004/2005 Ontario Works Funding Project.

Snoezelen sessions are 45 minutes and can be booked by calling 416-396-7760.
There is a fee of $5 a session.

Date: Wednesday, September 21
Time: 10 a.m.
Location: Agincourt Community Centre, 31 Glen Watford Dr., (east of Midland
Avenue and Sheppard Avenue East)
